Come See Me And The GCC Band This Friday In Disney!

Notice: All Floridians and wannabe mousketeers.   I, along with the Grove City College, Marching Wolverine and Jazz Band, will be performing this Friday at Disney World.  If you’re close, please come down and say hello!   The best spot to catch me (and us!) will be at 11:20 a.m. on Friday, the 24th at the Magic Kingdom Galaxy Palace Theater (located in Tomorrowland), where I will be directing the our Disney Jazz Band Combo.

It’s a full jazz layout, including 5 saxophones, 4 trumpets, 4 trombones, plus piano, guitar, bass guitar, and set.

We will be performing:

  1. My Favorite Things
  2. Orange Colored Sky (Vocal)
  3. Zip-a-dee-doo-dah
  4. Hello Again (Vocal)
  5. Friend Like Me
  6. Colors of the Wind (Vocal)
  7. Woodchoppers ball

It will be a grand time and the jazz group, well… Rocks!  Also, Dr. Arnold and I will be parading our “Division 1”, from a “Division 3 school” Marching Band through the Magic Kingdom Park at 2:30 p.m. the same day.   Getting ready for this event has been both real fun and real time consuming (as many of you know).    Hey, I hear the Chief Magic Official, Justin Muchoney, will be there as well! :)

Here’s to a Magical day!
